Big Bounce Back -- Wildcats blank Patriots, 25-0; return to win column

GARLAND – Winning sure cures a lot of problems.

Shutting out a 5A program on the road seemed to pep the Wildcat coaches and players up coming off a disappointing defeat.

After a bad start to the season, losing 28-14 to Denton Ryan, the Sulphur Springs Wildcats snapped out of the one-game funk and rolled to a 25-0 win over Garland Lakeview Centennial.

The rare Thursday night drew a respectable crowd on a school night at Williams Stadium. The Sulphur Springs faithful fans probably out-numbered the Patriot-backers.


Wildcat Notes: History proves shutout is precursor of good things

The shutout that the Sulphur Springs Wildcats recorded Thursday against Garland Lakeview Centennial could be a precursor of good things for next week.

In the last 25 years, the Wildcats have 19 shutouts. In the very next game following those shutout wins, the Wildcats are 18-1. It seems a strong defensive effort carries over to the next game.
